Scott’s on car at Went­worth

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Back Page - Mur­ray Spooner

Cathkin Braes golfer Scott Jamieson hit the first hole in one of his Euro­pean Tour ca­reer to win a £40,000 car.

The Scot aced the 10th hole at this year’s BMW PGA Cham­pi­onship in Went­worth, Sur­rey to earn him­self a brand new BMW M2.

Scott was in the sec­ond-last group out on Fri­day, and he was right on the pro­jected cut line at one over par when he ar­rived on the tee at the 184-yard par-three.

But he gave him­self the big­gest lift pos­si­ble as he hit a per­fect five-iron shot and his ball dis­ap­peared into the bot­tom of the cup.

The 32 year old told the Re­former: “I’ve missed the last few cuts so to make it last week was good es­pe­cially for such a big event.

“To hit a hole in one any­where is a spe­cial mo­ment. You hit so many shots and some will land on the green and look like they’ll go in but they don’t. So when the ball dis­ap­peared and dropped in I was a bit sur­prised.

“To hit a hole in one and win a car like that was spe­cial, I don’t know if I’ll keep the car. I haven’t de­cided what I’m go­ing to do. I think there is a wait­ing list for them. All in all it was a good few days. I played bet­ter than I had the past few weeks.”

Scott fin­ished 47th on the leader­board with a three over par score while fel­low Scots Richie Ram­say and David Drys­dale ended their fi­nal rounds just ahead on +2 and +1 re­spec­tively.

Eng­land’s Chris Wood, 28, came from three shots down to win the tour­na­ment and scoop €833,330 in prize money.

Scott jet­ted out to Swe­den yes­ter­day, Tues­day, for the Nordea Masters which start on June 4 be­fore he trav­els to play in the Ly­oness Open in Atzen­brugg Aus­tria.
